New York: HIV Housing Rent Decision Challenged

October 30, 2006

The AIDS advocacy group Housing Works plans to file a lawsuit today in Federal District Court in Brooklyn challenging the city's decision to hike the rent contribution required from some 2,200 poor adults with HIV/AIDS living in government-subsidized apartments. The city's Human Resources Administration says it was ordered to make the change by the state's Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. Beginning Wednesday, the affected clients will see their share of their monthly rent climb from 30 percent of their income to as much as 75 percent. The new policy requires that they spend all but $330 of their income -- which is provided by federal assistance -- on their rent.
